It’s hard making decisions on an empty stomach. Take it from Southern California immigration officer Mai Nhu Nguyen, who was arrested last month for accepting bribes for $2,000 and 200 egg rolls – all without any shrimp fried rice to wash it down.
According to NBC Los Angeles, Nguyen accepted three separate bribes from immigrants — $2,000 for citizenship in June; $1,100 for a green card in 2011 and 200 egg rolls for citizenship, also in 2011. NBC reports that Nguyen had been working at the Santa Ana, Calif. U.S. Citizenship and Immigrations Service office for the past eight years and can face up to 15 years in federal prison for each count of bribery.
Of course the real travesty here is that Nguyen ever believed the cost of sharing this great nation of ours only amounted to 200 rolls. It’s gotta be, like, at least 500. Plus 50 packs of that sweet chili sauce. And 80 boxes of shrimp fried rice. Come on now, Mai, where’s your capitalist spirit?
